With its high ceilings, Georgian features and tastefully furnished to a high standard, it offers a lovely retreat in south/central Somerset, 3 miles north of Langport and 10 miles south of Glastonbury, with its famous Tor, providing a relaxing holiday base to explore the Somerset Levels and the many attractions in the area. In the main house there are 5 bedrooms, comprising four double (two emperor beds, one super king and one king-size) and a twin-bedded room, two bathrooms, and on the ground floor a spacious dining-room, drawing room, sitting room and kitchen. Adjacent and connected to the main house is a self contained annex for 4 with double and twin-bedded rooms, bathroom, living room and kitchen.

High Ham itself is architecturally interesting and contains a part Norman church and a National Trust thatched windmill, which is the only one in the country. There are also many fine historic houses to visit: Montacute House and Gardens, Hestercombe House, Wells Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace and more.
